USA boxing is hurt! Can it recover?
If you haven't kept up with what has been happening in the World of amatuer boxing, you need to understand that our amatuer boxing program is close to being down for the count of 10. After our poor showing in the Olympics one of USA boxing leaders made a silly, degrading statement about lady boxers which was very degrading and out of line. The international organzition decertifies us for three month and put our program rightly in danger. Our leaders finally eliminated this individual and got the decertification stopped but we still need to follow the international organzitions guidelines to keep amatuer boxing alive. We are a low point in our existence and we all need to support our leadership and keep on top of this. It seems like our remaining leaders running USA boxing are trying their best to right a sinking ship. In order to do this we need all hands on board. STay in contact with USAboxing.org and offer any help you can. It seems like we maybe pulling our selves up off the floor but only time will tell. We need to band together as comrades and offer any help needed. If you have complaints or suggestion present them as brothers and sisters and come together as a team. That is the only way USA boxing can beat the count. Coach Thorpe
